Louisville, KY (WDRB News) -- It is just the kind of high tech company that Louisville is trying to attract and to keep.
Thirteen years ago Dan Knapp started his company out of his home with five other people living and working there. "There is a great technology community in Louisville, I think it is a great place for a start-up," says Knapp.
On Friday, Knapp cut the ribbon on a building that will now serve as the headquarters of LeapFrog Interactive.
"Over the last few years," says Knapp, "we have been growing our business, we saw an opportunity from both market standpoint and growth standpoint, so it was time to take the plunge and buy our own building."
LeapFrog is moving from offices that it has been leasing to its own building.
The company is spending $1.8 million to transform an old warehouse building into a headquarters that he believes will foster creativity and new ideas with its open spaces and modern look. "We currently have 55 employees and plan to have at least 60 by this fall, and beyond that looking toward client growth to tell us how to add and where to add employees," adds Knapp.
The new headquarters has room for up to 70 workers.
The company creates web sites, provides digital marketing, public relations, and social media for its clients.
